Abstract: The term “missionary” for many years has been related to Christianity and its activities. However, the word missionary is derived from the root word mission which means, an important task that people are given to do especial one that involves travelling to another county. In Islam a similar word is there in Arabic Language known as “Da’wah” which means calling peoples towards the word of God. Islam being one of the missionary religions, the concept of missionary activities or Da’wah activities is not a new phenomenon. Consequently, this study shall discuss; “Islamic Da’wah and Missionary Enterprise in Kenyan Coast (Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu Districts) 1895-2005 Comparative Study.” In this study, Coast province is chosen purposely because of the following: it was the first place where both faiths stopped over. Coast was and still is the gateway of Kenya to the world by sea. The region is also predominantly Muslim area. It is the most wanted region by the Missionary Enterprise. The year 1895 was deliberately selected because it was the time when the colonial rule established itself and made the East African region its protectorate. Under the colonial government, the Christian missionaries got a considerable support. Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu towns were the first city states established by Muslims in their early days and the first to be affected by the Christian mission. This study shall therefore consist of six chapters, under each chapter there shall be sub-topics. Then there shall be a declaration, abbreviations, table of contents, conclusion, Bibliography and Appendixes. Chapter One; Introduction. Chapter two; An overview of Islam in East African Coast. Chapter three; Christianity in Kenyan Coast 1498-1889. Chapter four; The Struggle of Kenyan Muslims against the Colonial Regime and Christian Church. Chapter five; The Impact of Islamic Da’wah and Missionary Works on Mombasa, Malindi and Lamu Districts. Chapter six; The Anti-Islamic Policy of Kenya Government.
